    Patrick Petrella is now installed behind a new desk, as Superintendent of an East London dockland area. Though this marks a well merited step up the career ladder, the paperwork of modern policing makes Petrella itch to be out on the streets again.

Petrella detects patterns of rival gangs at work and uncovers a paedo-porn ring which stretches across the North Sea to Amsterdam's sleazier side.
